Is a Greyhound right for you?

We think Greyhounds make great pets because...

BUT, we realise, like all breeds of dog, that they are not right for everyone.

Here are some important points to consider when deciding if the Greyhound is the breed for you...

GreyhoundGreyhounds are reasonably large dogs, they take up space.

They must NEVER be let off leash in an unfenced area - they are sight hounds and can see things as much as a kilometre away, which they naturally want to investigate.

It is advised that a minimum fence height of 1.5 metres (5 ft), including gates, should be provided. 1.8 metres (6 ft) is even better. All fencing should be in good condition, with no gaps underneath.

Greyhounds are not watch dogs or guard dogs.

Are You Right for a Greyhound ?

Our obligation to the dogs in our care is to find them loving, responsible homes for the rest of their lives.
These are the things we look for in the prospective adopter...

Please adopt a Greyhound for the right reason - because you are drawn to their beauty and dignity, and because you want a companion animal to share your life with - not because you feel sorry for them.

If you are right for a Greyhound, and a Greyhound is right for you, our commitment to you is to do our best to match you to the right dog and give you as much support as you need to make the adoption a success.
